It's Vacation Somewhere: What a Resortwear Designer Swears By

You may be lucky enough to get a tropical vacation once in a while, spending months planning, daydreaming, even salivating for that moment to arrive. Or better yet, you can put yourself in a vacation state of mind at any time, simply by surrounding yourself with beachy beauty and fashion items that feel like a fresh ocean breeze. With that idea in mind, we turned to getaway expert Sarah Fathy, the founder and lead designer of Poska Resortwear, to share some of her signature Swears.

Sarah is an Egyptian immigrant now based in San Diego. Long inspired by Arabic culture and the bazaars in Oman, Sarah's vision is an east-meets-west beachwear brand that evokes the luxury and elegance of Dubai. To create the ultimate travel wardrobe, Sarah travels "twice a year to visit the other side of the world and get inspired for fabric and colors." Some of her favorite spots include Santorini, Muscat, Belize, and Punta Mita in Mexico. With her collection of caftans and tunics designed to flatter all shapes, Sarah says "it's easy to have a resort state of mind anytime, whether it's for a getaway or a night on the town." So pour yourself a Mai Tai and enjoy this list of vacation-minded Swears from a beachside pro...

Trader Joe's 100% Organic Argan Oil

“This oil is great for hair and face! I put it on before applying foundation and makeup to give an overall glow to my skin.”

Poska Resortwear Amina Kaftan

“As a founder, I sincerely Swear by my creations and this is a collection favorite! This versatile, easy-to-wear chiffon piece sits just above the knee and is the perfect holiday cover-up. Its coffee and red colored striped square neck line is made from a cotton and satin blend with gold thread, carefully woven in to shine with the sun’s rays. Originally worn as a traditional Arabian vest, we took this traditional fabric to make it a one-of-a-kind piece and added tassels to chest and sleeves to add some playful fun.”

ZAFUL Sunflower Criss-Cross Bikini

“A caftan wouldn’t be complete without a cute suit underneath! I love this brand for their affordable prices and sunny prints.”

Kitsch Tie Dye Scrunchies

“These scrunchies are great for putting up hair on the beach or when going to bed. An extra perk: not losing a few strands when pulling out of you hair!”

Lack of Color Aruba Fray Boater Hat

“The frayed edge on this natural straw boater adds the perfect touch to any getaway outfit.”

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Ultra-Light Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50

“For a getaway or any day, I Swear by this lightweight, fluid, matte-finish SPF developed for sensitive skin.”

Bangn Body Yellow Tube Of Goodness

“I love this body lotion to have vacation-ready skin any time. Not only is it great for hydrating skin, but it also reduces redness, bumps, and breakouts due to the anti-inflammatory properties.”

In my unbiased opinion, my friends are the smartest, coolest, most talented women out there :) They've always given the best tips and advice, and I've often scored a new favorite product based on their honest, real recommendations. I created SwearBy because I wanted to recreate that experience at scale for all women, cutting through the noise and nonsense so busy women can buy only awesome things. There's power in what we really SwearBy! So, show me your Swears and I'll show you mine :)
